Are You Going To Hear Chamlee Tonight? ifcSoutM California <JAN Time To Start Saving For The Calif. Game Vol. XVI Los Angeles, California, Thursday, October 16, 1924 Number 12 ARIO CHAMLEE HOMECOMING CONCERT TONIGHT E 0 XFORD^ UNIVERSITY WILL DEB A TE OXFORD UNIVERSITY OF ENGLAND ON LOCAL DEBATE SCHEDULE Ned Lewis, Barber, and Brennan to Debate On Principal Of Prohibition, Subject of Current Interest To Nation Predictions that 1924 would prove one of the greatest years in Trojan debating were brought to a grand climax yesterday with the announcement by Ray Brennan, debate manager, that the Oxford University of England had been put on the local schedule and that the Trojan debaters will oppose the strong Oxford team on January 8 in Bovard Auditorium. The meeting was arranged following a series of telegrams, cablegrams, letters, etc, from Brennan and Coach Nichols to the Oxford authorities and those in charge feel that the U. S. C. students can feel proud that the two teams can ?ther. come to According to Coach Alan Nichols, the Trojan team will be composed of Neil I>?v^, William S. Barber and Bernard Brennan. The subject, “Resolved, That This House is Opposed to the Principle of Prohibition,’ is one of current interest to everyone and it is expected by those in charge that a large number of outsiders as well as students will plan to attend. The Oxford debators will try to prove to this country that the principle of prohibition is an infringement on the clause which states that “this is a free country.’’ while Troy will uphold the national constitution in this respect. All of the Trojan debators have had previous experience and Coach Nichols feels that the decision, which will be of audience variety, will go to U. S. C. Ned Lewis, president of the Associated Students, last year’s debate manager, member of Delta Sigma Rho, Skull and Dagger, and Sigma Sigma fraternities, who will be the first speaker, has taken part in 18 colle giate debates in his career on the Trojan debate squad and will no doubt do his part to bring glory to Troy William S. Barber, now a student at Law school, captain of the debate! CAMPUS CUES!

These three days will mark the campaign for the Campus Chest Fund, which has been established io do away with the multitude of tag days and drives, and to give to each organization the amount necessary to carry on its work without making periodic appc-als to the sympathy of the student body. The Campus Chest Committee,js a sub-committee of the Executive Committee and carefully considers the budget of each organization which desires to secure money through the Chest Fund. This insures a proper distribution of funds to worthy causes and protects the student from impositions and waste. The money will po to those organizations which a*e of direct benefit to the student body. A material saving will be effected under the Chest plan. All the energy.

Proof of the success of the Chest plan is seen in its adoption by numerous cities throughout the country. Communities have found it to be satis factory in every way and the pub- INSPIRING RALLY HELD AT STATION Hawkin and Coach Henderson Tell of Determination To Win lie ha>- welcomed the relief from tag As the train slowly pulled away from the Southern Pacific station Tuesday evening and as the strains of the Alma Mater died away one could notice by close inspection of the thirty-five faces on the rear platform of the moving train a determination— a determination to win. There were over fifteen hundred of the Trojan student body at the station to bid the team good bye. Ferhaps it entered in the minds of the students that it is spirit behind the team that £ives the final initiative for the winning touch-down. The crowd assembled in the main corridor shortly after seven o'clock. From that time until seven-thirty under the able leadership, as many said, of Hank McCann, yells were> given for the departing players. About ' jten minutes before the train left, I McCann gave the word that a limited number would be allowed on the tracks. Everyone wrent out, and everyone tried to or did snake hands with his or her pariiular friend on the team. The team congregated on the observation platform. It was ■ through the efforts of the rally committee that Captain Hawkins spoke, j “Jahn" gave a short talk on the coming game, and as someone said, “I think he is too overcome to talk much.” A chant went up. “We want Henderson,” “We want Henderson,” and from the depths of t-he train some of the well-knownn student body officers persuaded Coach Henderson to appear. His talk, to the point said, “We will win!” Henry McCann must have had some arrangement with the engineer of the train. Nothing, many said, could have days and drives. The Chest Fund Committee believes that the student body will recognize the saving to them and support the I movement whole-heartedly. It is essential that the campaign be a success in order to kep up the work of the various campus organizations who are dependent upon student contributions and prevent a return to the old svstem of individual drives. Who’s who and why will be forgotten next Saturday night at ihe alluniversity progressive when four of the largest campus fraternity houses along Twenty-eighth street will be op-| ened for the first big dance of the se-! mester, and high and mighty celeb-I rities will lose their identity in the mixup of cut-ins and robber dances. Saturday night has been chosen by the committee as the night for the danee instead of Friday for the all .sufficient reason that Saturday is the day of the Oregon football game, and the dance will be a celebration of the Trojan victory in the first conference game of the season. Leased wire service direct from the game has been secured by president of the student body, Ned Lewis, which w'ill give earliest final report of the game together with all details. These reports will be broadcasted through the crowd at the dance, heightening the gaiety of the affair and, according to Martha Smith and her committees in charge, adding the necessary element to make the dance one o fthe most hilarious victory celebrations in student history. INFORMALITY KEYNOTE Strict informality continues to be the keynote of the plans for the affair, releasing both men and co-eds from the necessity of a formal introduction. Plaid flannels and swreaters and sport skirts will be the accepted garb for women w'hile men are expected to appear in the usual campus regalia of cords, balloon trousers, et cetera. Music such as in guaranteed to | come from the souls and saxophones I of the presiding campus syncopators j will be the I&test and most popular j dance hits released for the amuse- j ment of the moron intelligence of col- j lege studes and otherwise, and will j start promptly at eight continuing j without noticeable interruption until j midnight. A host has been secured to take charge of each fraternity house and i will be on hand during the entire evening to maage the crowds, isuring everybody a rip-roaring good time. Delta Gamma, Pi Beta Phi, Lambda Psi, and Xi Psi Phi are the houses to which every U. S. C. student from i frosh to graduate, and liberal arts to \ professironal are invited on Saturday, October 18, with the only requisites for admission being student cards,! I sport garb, and no date*5 Reports of Oregon Game to Come Over Special Wire Through the efforts of Graduate manager, Gynn Wilson and the Rally committee of the associated student body a special leased wire from the field of play at Portland to the Coliseum will bring play-by-play reports to the Trojan at the Santa Clara Oxy game. In order not to interfere with the game in progress in the Coliseum, a special section will be reserved. By the use of loud speakers those interested can look at the game in progress and listen to the reports of the game in Portland.

In 1913, Mr. Chamlee left I . S. C., a man who served his University on the gridiron and sang in the glee club. Today he returns to the city of his birth, heralded as a famous tenor, one whose voice critics declare to be the equal of the Caruso voice. Last year Mario Chamlee returned to Los Angeles and received an ovation of welcome unprecedented in the musical world. An honorary degree Master of Music, was conferred upon him by his Alma Mater; the mayor C and the president of the Chamber of Commerce sent him telegrams of welcome and a group of his former co-stars of the gridiron welcomed him as he stepped from the train. ALBERTI SEES CHAMLEE How the great tenor came from the position of glee club man to leading tenor in the Metropolitan Opera company is Ions but interesting. It was Achille Alberti who persuaded the young tenor to study for the stage and started him on his operatic career. The war interrupted Mario Cham-lee’s career and although he is a native born American, he volunteered early and went overseas to join the Italian army with which he served throughout the war. After the war he toured America with the Scotti Opera Company with Miss Farrar and Scoctti and then was secured by the Metropolitan Opera Company to fill the vacancy caused by Caruso’s death. His operatic debut was with the La Scala Opera Company of Los Angeles and now he returns home triumphant. Saturday.

Tommy Wampus is not to prowl from his alley until October 28, when he is schceduled to make his first appearance on the campus and to give his famous yowl for the California same. Wamp’s trainers had first decided to send him forth on December 20, but as popular opinion had demanded him to be larger, he is being fattened still more. He is said to be growing quite husky and has all his old pep and playfulness. Grady Setzler, chief kitty petter, declared that, although much fodder has been contributed. Wampus is still mieowing for more, as his appetite is enormous. All material that is not digested on the first issue of the funny cat, will be used for later appearances. The editor said that the best and cleverest work will be featured in this first number which is to be unusuallw large and uncommonly funny. It is even guaranteed to draw a smile and possibly laugh from Buster Keaton. Wampus staff is said to be the largest and most versatile that has ever published Wampus since its first yowl. A large quantity of good advertising has been secured for the campus magazine and some of the best copy could not be prepared in time for first decided date of publication. This was one of the causes of delay of the magazine. The first issue of Wampus is to be the “Cradle” number and is respectfully dedicated to this year’s crop of freshmen w'ho are also making thoir first yowls on the campus. It was sug-'gested that this issue will help the newcomers forget the trials of their first months’ hardships in the University. Any student is eligible to contribute copy for the campus comic. The only requirement for the work is that it be funny and snappy. Jokes, short stories, p’avs, poems, cartoons or any other art material is desired. All material must be in the staff’s hand3 before midnight, October 20. Copy may be given to Grady Setzler. Ralph Dorothy Herriman, Norman
